LuLu Westbrook Griffin, an agent of change, educator, poet, and writer who has won many awards, including the keys to the city of Niagara Falls and Buffalo, New York, a proclamation day, and the 2007 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I Have a Dream Award, has completed her new book “Memoirs of a Revolution Experience through Poetry and Poems”: a thought-provoking and evocative collection of verse reflecting on childhood in a segregated Georgia town.

The author writes, “Memoirs containing poems/poetry of a revolutionary experience in the lives of many of the colored people living in this southwestern town of Georgia during the 1950s and 1960s, which were dominated by the Jim Crow laws.

This was a form of segregation and separatism and, to put it mildly, racism! Many young students and other blacks took a stand against hatred, blatant persecution perpetrated by militants, Southern whites, supremacist groups, and racists. This book was written in hopes of sharing the true history of a thirteen-year-old in the articulation of a firsthand experience during the 1960s Civil Rights movement. The atrocities, the jails, the beatings, and suffering of many children, students, families, and others who lived there during this time led at last to the changing of laws, and voting rights came out of this revolution.”

Published by Page Publishing, LuLu Westbrook Griffin’s engrossing book is a compelling choice for avid poetry and American history readers.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Memoirs of a Revolution Experience through Poetry and Poems” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
